Short Film – Graeme Obree, Athlete or Genius?

Cycling fans and those who watched the movie The Flying Scotsman back in 2006 should have a massive appreciation for Graeme Obree and his incredible record setting bike. The above video and the data revealed are a good reminder that thinking outside the box truly can be revolutionary. Graeme was very outside the box, creating a DIY bike made with washing machine parts to break world records.

On to the question at hand, “Which was fastest, the Superman or the Egg position?” Now I’m left wondering what bikes would look like today had Graeme Obree gotten along with the UCI even just slightly better.
